Spanish Word Names

The parent in search of truly distinctiveSpanish baby names has to move farther than ever away from the established roster. One new direction — or is it two? — for the intrepid baby namer is toward foreign-word names, which combine two of today's coolest trends. A handful of Spanish word names are already hot in the US, such as Luna, meaning “moon,” and Cruz, the word for “cross.”

Along with Luna and Cruz, other Spanish word names in the US Top 1000 include Alma, Dulce, Esmeralda, Julio, Leon, Luz, Maximo, Paloma, and Salvador. In Spain, word names such as Alba, Vega, Candela, and Mar are popular for girls.

We combed our own diccionarios for French, Italian, and Spanish words that could make perfectly appropriate, attractive baby names, and here are some Spanish ideas. But no reason to stop here — consider words from the language of your own ethnic background, be it Czech or Chinese, and add them to the list of your personal possibilities.
